Both of you are very eager to scoff, and insinuate. Patience, alas, is missing
I said I would get confirmation, and this is his response to the question I posed on a caravan forum
, of which we are both members:
"Yes, correct, I have done that on a few occasions. It will start- and run-
indefinitely ON LOW POWER, on my 300w SureSine inverter.
However, my Panasonic has "power" level LEDs, allowing me to fiddle the
temperature to keep the power level very low (which draws anywhere from 200 to
I have no way to limit it to low power, other than manipulating the selected
temperature and watching the power LEDs, (or the Aldi power meter) which is
rather labour intensive.
If the aircon tries to run up to full power (which will draw about 650- 700
watts), the SureSine inverter will shut down immediately to protect itself.
Basically, you need full batteries and plenty of solar, plus preferably a bigger
inverter. If I could intentionally limit the aircon to say 300 watts (low power)
manually, it would be much more practicle.
Hope that's what you needed to know."
Are you both satisfied now?
